Software quality pays off in the long term
When innovative business ideas fail owing to countless bugs and bad decisions, not only do good ideas fall by the wayside, resources are wasted unnecessarily. Intelligent quality assurance combats this effectively and increases the ability to act.
Professional, standardised test management thereby not only increases the quality of a software product, it also contributes significantly to reducing project costs.
Conscious control of software quality
Failures can be avoided by strategically adopting tried-and-trusted quality assurance measures such as performance tests. At bbv, our quality assurance strategy involves an intelligent combination of models, methods and test automation. And for good reason, as this allows the desired quality level to be controlled consciously.
Quality begins with the right mindset
bbv’s software developers are professional in their respective disciplines and their mindset is always to deliver top-class work. After all, achieving above-average performance demands constant awareness of the impact of quality-related decisions.
In addition, our teams have to be able to assess the situation and the objectives precisely in order to choose the correct methodical, technical and organisational measures. Our Software Development Quality map summarises the wealth of successful strategies for achieving optimum quality assurance with the bbv seal of approval.
More efficient testing with tool-based automation
Certainty in power supply: Switchgear installations must fulfil the strictest requirements.
